Lots of fun and exciting news has been emerging from the land of YA!
The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones script is almost done! Writer Marlene King said that her favorite scene was the greenhouse moment with Jace and Clary, so not only is the ever-so-important scene in, it should also be spot on. Apparently Sony is also involved in the film, so here’s to hoping that Sony’s extra money helps get this baby off the ground. Let’s just hope King doesn’t turn this into Pretty Little Liars with downworlders.
In addition to graphic novels for The Mortal Instruments, Cassandra Clare will also have adaptations of the Infernal Devices series published.
Cassandra Clare said of the deal: “As a long-time fan of manga, I’m so excited to be working on this adaptation with Yen Press. Manga has influenced a great deal of the way I envision narrative, and the chance to see my work rendered in the form is something I couldn’t pass up. I look forward to seeing HyeKyung Baek’s evocative art bring The Infernal Devices’ world of gaslit romance to life.”
Chapters of The Infernal Devices will be serialized in Yen Press’s monthly online anthology magazine, Yen Plus, with publication of the first volume slated for Fall 2012.
